Summary of "Flatfoot deformity affected the kinematics of the foot and ankle in proportion to the severity of deformity."

Flatfoot deformity is thought to affect gait kinematics, but the effect of flatfoot on segmental motion of the foot during gait remains unclear. Recently, multi-segmental foot models (MFMs) have been introduced for the in vivo analysis of dynamic foot kinematics. The objective of this study was to find the effect of flatfoot on segmental motion of the foot during gait in females by comparisons with age and gender controlled healthy adults.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition characterized by a broad range of progressive disorders ranging from TENOSYNOVITIS to tendon rupture with or without hindfoot collapse to a fixed, rigid, FLATFOOT deformity. Pathologic changes can involve associated tendons, ligaments, joint structures of the ANKLE, hindfoot, and midfoot. Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is the most common cause of acquired flatfoot deformity in adults.

Deformity in which the foot is misaligned with respect to the TALUS in the ANKLE JOINT. While mostly congenital, as in CLUBFOOT, acquired deformities are included. Acquired talipedes are often associated with other foot deformities such as SYNDACTYLY and POLYDACTYLY.

Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot. (From Foot Ankle 1990;11(1):47-52)

A foot deformity in which the arch of the foot is high and often the heel adducted.

A condition in which one or more of the arches of the foot have flattened out.
